Staff Analysis of the Legislation

During the House Rules meeting on 3.27.18, a substitute was offered that removes the private landfill host fee bill and in its place is a bill relating to the chief medical examiner and his/her authority to inter remains (bury) and disinter remains (remove a body from a grave).

The original intent of SB 385 increases the state‚Äôs minimum local solid waste cost reimbursement (host) fee on waste going into landfills owned by private entities.  The $1 minimum fee has been in existence since 1992.

Talking points advocating for the increase of private landfill host fees can be found hereSimilar host fee language has been added to HB 792
